I've tried three times to watch Solo and fallen asleep every time. I can't see why others liked it.

 

Rogue One is legitimately great imo.

Need some sort of not quite pos but not quite neg...

BuzzFeed sound fairly confident that a Knights of the Old Republic movie is being written:

A movie based on Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic — the beloved video game first released in 2003 — is currently being written by Laeta Kalogridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) for Lucasfilm, three sources close to the project told BuzzFeed News.

I feel a bit baffled at that, KOTOR at the time was popular over the innumerable other annual Star Wars tie-in games due to a backlash against the prequels, instead of their weird new stuff it was a return to the style of the OT, an underdog group in a tramp freighter vs !Star Destroyers, there was even a smuggler with a Wookie sidekick, and you go back to Yavin IV and Tatooine.

 

When the current backlash is they're too overly referential of the past, is another knockoff of the OT really what people want?

Of course it was always written as the character lying. What was never intended was for Darth Vader to have been watching when they nick the plans and scoot away while he stands about 3 metres away and that bit of fanservice (which was added at the last minute to Rogue One) turns the start of Star Wars into this.

Star Wars fixed with all the lore put in from all the sequels and prequels.

 

 

That’s great. I love the bit in the Death Star boardroom when he’s saying to the force skeptic “remember Yoda? The Jedi council? It’s not ancient, this all happened within your lifetime.”

I love this irritated yet patient Vader, having to explain things to people as if they are all stupid. His telling off to the officer about scanning for droids sounds like an overly naggy boss/wife, brilliant stuff.

It's standard exposition for the American audience for many decades now.

So Pablo Hidalgo from Lucasfilm has noticed fine detail visible within The Empire Strikes Back that he’s never seen before. Could that be a clue that 4K releases are incoming?

 

It could be a knowing signal of what he's up to but the fans have pointed out they've seen it before. I wonder if the fans are being too literal and you could be right.

I notice ITV are currently broadcasting Star Wars 1-6 on Sunday afternoons. This reminded me of the times I saw Star Wars on TV during the 80s and 90s - the TV schedule announcements, toy adverts, stores announcing Christmas opening times, etc - that were placed before, during and after the movies. Before the 1995 boxset was released, I would watch my father's Xmas 1989 VHS recording of ROTJ and recall an ad break that took the viewer from Han Solo in a dungeon to Ken Livingstone eating cheese at his breakfast table - a confusing & slightly terrifying event at the time, but one that became ingrained into my ROTJ 'experience' and remember whenever I re-watch the movie.

 

Are there any events or memories that others remember whenever you think of/re-watch a Star Wars movie or TV shows?

I was 4  when ESB was released and was brought to see it at the cinema- we got those icecream things that had a chewing gum ball at the bottom each(like a plastic cone filled with icecream) and mine was the only one without. So coupled with a downbeat ending I didn't understand and a disappointing ice cream scenario I've never really liked the movie despite it obviously being great.

I have a similar cinema trip memory as above and was roughly the same age, though the film was Star Wars around the time of its UK release. I always (even to this day and having seen it many many many times) have a vibe with the final shot of Han, Luke and Chewbacca taking a little bow. I know they don't but for some reason I can see myself watching that happen then the cinema screen curtain going down immediately and the lights coming up and moving from our seats.

 

I know they don't bow and although the cinema did have a curtain that would open and close I can't see it doing so straight after that final scene. It's obviously a bit of reality mixed with fantasy, perhaps I jumbled it all up with some panto or something but it's so vivid, even now.

 

In fact even though the last time I watched that scene was only a few days ago and for probably the hundredth time I still just fired it up to check.

 

Yeah, still no bow and deffo no closing curtains lol.
